I'm Kendall King, the new 6th grade teacher here at Highmore-Harrold Elementary. I'm SO excited to be teaching in my hometown and to get to know all the kiddos here at HHS.
I'm a 2006 graduate of Highmore High School and a 2011 graduate of Black Hills State University, where I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Science: Elementary Education and Special Education. The 2017-2018 school year marks the seventh year of my teaching career. I spent four years solely teaching special education, one year teaching 2nd and 3rd grades combined and special education, one year teaching 2nd and 3rd grades combined only, and now, my newest adventure, teaching 6th grade. My new duties also include teaching math and science to both 5th and 6th grades. I'm extremely excited to be in the 6th grade and am looking forward to an awesome year!
My husband, Chip, our son, Charles Robert (1), and I live here in Highmore. We enjoy spending our free time camping, fishing, hunting, cooking, and spending time with our family and friends. Watching our "Wildman Charles" grow and learn every day brings us the greatest joy!
In our classroom, we focus on hard work, responsibility, and accountability. Student's are expected to show up to school on time and prepared to put in a full day's work. I do not assign homework unless a daily assignment doesn't get completed in the amount of time that's been allowed in class. If an assignment does go home, it is to be completed and handed in by the time we start that subject the next day in class. I believe that when my students go home, their time needs to be spent doing things with their families that I can't teach them in school.
Please feel free to contact me any time. Email is best and I can be reached at my school email. firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm very much looking forward to this school year and am thrilled to be a Pirate...again!
